Books and Butterburgers

Here in Bullhead City one can begin a literary experience as they enjoy a Butterburger and frozen custard. Just outside a secondary entrance to Culver’s restaurant, 3699 Highway 95, Suite 700, is a small green book cabinet sitting atop a post. These boxes are far from common in the Tri-state, but in mid-2018 there were about 65,000 of these street libraries across the globe that allow people to take a book or leave a book. Like Culver’s, it’s a Wisconsin export: The first one went up in Hudson, Wisconsin, in 2009, in an effort not only to foster an interest in reading and sharing books but also to serve as a mini town square. It’s estimated that 47.5 million books have been exchanged at these small receptacles since then, according to information on the organization’s website, littlefreelibrary.com.
